    O’FALLON, Mo. (KMOV) — It was just before Christmas last year when O’Fallon police officer Montana Stephenson lost his home to a fire.

Friday, his family was able to see their new home for the first time.

Houston Homes stepped up and offered to rebuild the Stephenson’s house at-cost after the fire.

But the company built the family a bigger home than they originally had as a surprise.

“I cried,” sais Stephenson. “Honestly had to fight back the tears and I’m a man.”

Stephenson and his family are grateful for everyone’s support.

“It’s everything the kids could ask for too,” he said. “I think they were overwhelmed. It’s definitely a dream home. “

After the family was able to see a tour of their house, they hosted a grill out in their backyard for all the workers and neighbors.
